JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided the al-Aqsa mosque compound on Tuesday and assaulted several Palestinian worshipers, officials from the ministry of Islamic endowments told Ma'an.

Palestinian worshipers in the compound chanted religious slogans at a group of around 30 right-wing Jews who had entered the area via the Moroccan Gate.

Israeli forces raided the compound following the incident and physically assaulted several worshipers, ministry officials said.

The right-wing group was escorted out of the area by Israeli forces without completing their tour.

Earlier, a right-wing Jewish extremist tried to enter the compound by claiming he was a foreign tourist. Israeli police checked the man's documents and prevented him from entering after discovering he was Israeli, ministry officials added.

Al-Aqsa is located in East Jerusalem, a part of the internationally recognized Palestinian territories that have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

Notice the progression here. Now the Israelis are moving on from asserting their right to parade around to denying the Muslims the right to object.

Colin - you are wrong as usual: muslims have all right to object whatever they want to object. However, they do not have right to throw stones or Molotov cocktails. And the funny thing is - not only muslims, but Jews also have rights to ignore muslim's objections. And Jews have right to respond with mob dispersing tools when muslims violate civil order and demonstrate disobedience. Everybody has rights, but everybody must comply with law and order, and whoever does not comply would be punished.

To Jesse #2: '@ colin. please give me one reason, why jews aren't allowed to visit, visit the temple mount?' Your question rests on a false assumption: actually, Jews are allowed to visit the Temple Mount. They're just not allowed to do it armed groups, as an expression of Jewish sovereignty. It's as if I wanted to visit a synagogue. Sure I can -- but not in a Nazi uniform.

To Law #3: 'Colin - you are wrong as usual: muslims have all right to object whatever they want to object. However, they do not have right to throw stones or Molotov cocktails. And the funny thing is - not only muslims, but Jews also have rights to ignore muslim's objections. And Jews have right to respond with mob dispersing tools' So I CAN go visit a synagogue in a Nazi uniform, and if the faithful object, beat the crap out them? Have I got it right?

What I really love is this is all the quintessence of Zionism. A blizzard of falsehoods, distortions, false equivalencies, and all the rest of it is coupled with brute force to permit a blatant act of theft. It's at times like this that it becomes obvious to me that Zionism has become evil incarnate -- nothing more, nothing less. I've go further and say that however they put it to themselves, those who support Israel worship evil, and that's why they like Israel.

Religion of Blooood (Zionism) needs Bloodshed. Bloodshed saves Israel from the nightmare of having to live in peace and civility with Palestinians.

Muslims believe all the earth belongs to Allah (God), and anyone is welcome to a visit a mosque, providing they abide to the rules within that house of worship (Mecca is different, as there is a prohibition on non Muslims being able to enter there, sorry). However in the case of Al Aqsa, it is clear that the issues here come from the extreme provocation by far right Zionist groups, who go against their own religious authorities, arrogantly trampling & inciting the Muslims to defend the mosque.
